The Doomsday Clock is set to 2 minutes to midnight amid global tensions

http://bigthink.com/news/the-doomsday-clock-is-set-to-2-minutes-to-...

The Doomsday Clock was a relic of the past. What does it tell you that it is being used again? We have a dangerous POTUS who would be happy to end the world. It scares the shit out of me. It should scare the shit out of you. Why don't we see a public outrage against this kind of thinking? I call to everyone send Trump your heartfelt advice on NOT using nukes. WTF everyone?!?!?!?!?!

Mutually Assured Destruction is a form of suicide. It should not even be considered in the 21st century. Didn't the cold war with the Soviet Union teach us anything? The kids of today have not grown up with the iron current, so they have no idea what Mutually Assured Destruction even means. Trump as president scares me out of my clothes running in the streets screaming that the sky is falling.

It isn't reported on corporate news stations that the DPRK (North Korea) would abandon it's nuclear bomb program if the U.S. stopped war games within the legal boarders of NK.

That seems simple enough doesn't it?

Apparently the U.S.'s bulley complex superseeds logic.

The insane theory of Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) should be a thing of the past.  If the U.S. got rid of it's nuclear wapons most countries would follow.  The nuclear policy in the U.S. is bankrupt.  India can have nuclear weapons - Pakistan - ehh,  Israel (can't talk about that) - Iran and Nother Korea absolutly not.

It seems to me that a lot of this nonsense is Abrihamically based.

Chris,

Trump, Pence, and other religious nuts would threaten  Nuclear Annihilation making that the most important topic to date, trumping climate change.

Loren,

Regarding Hillary Clinton. She convinced President Barack Obama to take military action in Lybia despite the Joint Chiefs of Staffs objection.   Hillary Clinton also interviened in Hati what was the point of that? 

Hillary Clinton seemed to be a destabilizing force in the world.  Perhaps she was implementing what Naomi Klein wrote about in her book Disaster Capitalism. or the Shock Doctrine.

Unfortunately at the presidential level in the U.S. voters are presented with two terrible choices.

I don't know what you think about Bernie Sanders. My thoughts are that any candidate outside of the Republican, or Demicratic clubs are effectively blocked from becoming president.

If President Donald Trump leaves office premature of his four year term would the xtian kook Mike Pence be any better at addressing the most important issue of our time - that being climate change?

Chris, Drumpf is the point man.  He's the one rattling sabres at North Korea and claims that climate change is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.  He's the one appointing cabinet members who are diametrically opposed to the purposes of those offices and claiming fake news every time he hears a story or report that paints him in a bad light.  Put Hillary Clinton in the front office, and I can practically guarantee you, none of that happens.

The onus is on him ... period.

Loren,

I argue that Donald Trump isn't the  problem. He represents the problem, which is the people who elected and worship him.

Comment by Chris on February 1, 2018 at 6:03am

In irriitation.

Leave the biblical bullshit and armegeddon vampire walking dead prophecies behind.

The problem is Climate Change.

Donald Trump and many Meriquats ( Meriquat is what the Chinese call Americans)  Fiddle as anthropomorphic climate change and overpopulation results in rapid extinction.

Xtians think destruction of the earth will  Rapture them to heaven - That politically goes back to Ronney Reygun who prayed for armageddon.

If you think Donald Trump is a kook look at Ronald Reagan and the peanut gallery who elected and worship them.

The blunt fact is that, though such occurrences are rare, we have only one man to thank for the current state of the Doomsday Clock: Donald John Trump.  Sadly, I doubt he is even aware of this, and if he is, it would get relegated to the fake news pile.

I would bet that removing him from office would push those hands back at least a minute, if not two.
